Why is Your Furnace Tripping Your Circuit Breaker?

Heating

It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause complications through the coldest Dallas and Atlanta surrounding areas days is pretty high on Innovative Mechanical, LLC’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, you may need a furnace repair. Innovative Mechanical, LLC can help you determine what the exact problem is, but here are a few reasons we typically see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. It doesn’t matter what is happening with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in a qualified technician.

Overworked Furnaces
There are several reasons why furnaces can be overworked, but they’re usually preventable. Dirty air filters and blocked or closed vents are often responsible—and those problems can be easily identified and fixed during a preventive maintenance visit. If that’s not the cause of your furnace trouble, Innovative Mechanical, LLC can help you out by executing a furnace repair.

Short Circuits
If you have a short circuit in your furnace, it will trip the breaker promptly when you turn it on. If you think you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Innovative Mechanical, LLC right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very risky, causing fires or other serious damages.

Wiring Problems
Faulty installation or loose connections can cause your furnace to short circuit and trip your circuit breaker. It doesn’t matter how they got that way, loose wires can force your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Innovative Mechanical, LLC technician can find and tighten any loose connections and keep your furnace operating safely.
